In 1993, Clarence co-founded Metamorphosis Studios, an interactive multimedia development firm, where he served as CEO and Creative Director until early 1998 when the company was acquired by MediSolv, Inc. Immediately following the acquisition, at the height of the dot-com boom, Clarence co-founded and served as CEO of ImageCafe.com. ImageCafe was acquired for $23 million by Network Solutions/Verisign in November 1999, just seven months after it launched.
Clarence is currently founder and CEO of Groupsite.com, a social collaboration with over 40,000 companies and organizations as customers and co-founder of Arrived Inc., a stealth-mode mobile startup launching during the first half of 2011.
I have been following Mr. Wooten ever since hearing a podcast about his then company CollectiveX, which was soon renamed to Groupsite.com I have been impressed with his ability to be a true innovator in a sea of Internet pretenders. I wanted to nominate him because of what he has accomplished as an entrepreneur and Internet influencer. He is a person that I hold in very high regard and hope to one day emulate.
